This is a tasty recipe for a non-alcoholic Banana Smoothie that is easy to make and fabulous for summer afternoons with the whole family. One of the best parts of this mocktail is that you probably have the ingredients right there in your kitchen.

If you want to spike this drink add 1 ounce of banana liqueur or vodka. You can also use a flavored vodka like vanilla or banana (it's hard to find but out there).

Ingredients

  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 bananas (sliced)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla yogurt

Steps to Make It

  1. Pour the ingredients into a blender in the following order: honey, vanilla extract, bananas, vanilla yogurt, and ice.

  2. Gradually increase the blending speed and blend until the mixture is smooth.

  3. Pour the drink into a chilled glass.

Banana Split Smoothie Recipe

Take your favorite flavors of a banana split and liquify them and you have a banana split smoothie.This is the basic recipe we use, but it is up to interpretation and it's easy to add and subtract ingredients to fit your mood. It's a smoothie, you can do whatever you want. Some popular options include more chocolate, butterscotch, caramel, peanut butter, and coconut. There is also the option of adding a scoop of ice cream or yogurt (usually vanilla, but flavors are great too).

This recipe makes 2 servings. We like having the option of making a smoothie for two or making multiple batches for a group using some of those different flavors for each. Kids really enjoy creating their own blend.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Blend the pineapple and strawberry in a blender until mashed.

  2. Add the other ingredients and blend on high until smooth.

  3. Pour into two frozen parfait, coupe, or glass of your choice.

  4. Top with a dollop of whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate syrup, and a maraschino cherry.
